Comité de Ciencias Nucleares (NSC)
The objective of the NEA Nuclear Science Committee (NSC) is to assist member states in identifying, collecting, developing and promoting the basic scientific and technical knowledge required to guarantee and enhance the safe, stable, profitable operation of current nuclear systems and develop new-generation technologies.
The main areas the NSC`s working groups address are reactor physics and criticality safety, fuel cycle physics and chemistry, material science and radiation shielding. The NSC also runs research projects and databases related to these areas.
